Wave overtopping in harbour areas is a fairly untreated topic in the context of flood risk analyses. Pragmatic approaches were undertaken to evaluate the possible influence of wave overtopping on the frequency of flooding. However no consensus was reached on how wave overtopping in a harbour area could be quantified. Therefore it is also...

This study investigates wave driven onshore sandbar migration. Observations show that sandbars move onshore during mild wave conditions. Literature describes different potential sediment mechanisms that cause this onshore migration, but the dominant cause is still under debate. The goal of the present study is to determine the dominant sediment...

The maximum wave run-up on a beach is an important factor in the design of coastal protection measures. Therefore, it is desired to predict this run-up based on numerical models. In this thesis, this is done with the use of the model XBeach. Wave run-up consists of multiple components: a swash height, S, and a wave set-up, <η>. The swash height...

Coastal inundation models are benefited by timeliness of the predictions, not only when it comes to real-time forecasting but also considering risk assessment studies and sensitivity analysis. Numerical models however are often subjected to a trade-off between accuracy and efficiency, especially when dealing with large geographic scales. In this...

Posidonia oceanica is a flexible subaquatic seagrass species that forms extensive meadows across the Mediterranean Sea. These are considered one of the most valuable ecosystems on Earth. This MSc. thesis examines the role of P. oceanica in protecting the coast from storm impacts. Prior studies are based on flume experiments that focused, almost...

Low-lying tropical islands are highly vulnerable to the effects of sea-level rise and climate change. Most pressing is the threat posed to their fresh water supplies by wave-induced flooding. This thesis attempts to generalize previous site-specific studies of flooding on coral atolls and apply it in a framework that can be used for early...

This thesis investigates the governing generating mechanisms, shoaling and reflection behaviour of infra-gravity waves on a mild-sloping, macro-tidal, rocky shore platform. The methods comprise among others, field data analysis of the Lilstock platform, numerical modelling using a calibrated XBeach model and a cross-correlation analysis to...

Recently an innovative nourishment method has been applied as a counter measure for coastal recession in the Netherlands. This soft engineering solution, also known as the Sand Engine, consists of a shoreline perturbation of $21.5$ Mm\textsuperscript{3} sand which will be redistributed along the shore by the natural forces of waves, tides and...
